TO PUNK FLYERS
flyer announced a concert that marked an important turning
point in the history of punk in Los Angeles. The 1979 concert
held at Baces Hall was a benefit thrown for political prisoners
in Texas... it was the first (but not last), explicitly
political punk benefit concert held in Los Angeles.
bands that played, Plugz, Middle Class, and Zeros, were
all intuitively political... and the combination of angry
punk music and radical politics made this event stand out
from previous concerts. Many more political punk affairs
were to follow in the wake of this ground breaking concert.
